A very poor tool to do S/MIME signatures on binary files. Probably insecurely.
A very poor tool to generate S/MIME signatures for arbitrary content & probably insecurely too.
A quick example:
>>> smime_sign( ... signer_cert_path="/path/to/files/signer.cert", ... signer_key_path="/path/to/files/signer.pem", ... recipient_cert_path="/path/to/files/recipient.cert", ... content="test", ... output_format="PEM", ... )
This utility library has single purpose - provide support for making S/MIME signatures on Python2 and 3, which currently lacks any proper libraries for that purpose.
The main use case it is built for: at work our system has to generate Apple Passbook Pass files, which include an S/MIME signature. Currently it is done using M2Crypto.SMIME. While that works - we want to migrate to Python3, and unfortunately for us M2Crypto is not fully supported. smime_sign is a poor man’s solution for this problem.
Internally this does nothing more than call openssl smime, so you might want to see its docs too.
Generates and returns signature string for content in output_format.
All *_path arguments must be absolute paths.
content must be a string, not a path.
Example to generate signature for Passbook manifest:
>>> manifest_json = "..." # JSON string with `manifest.json` content >>> signature = smime_sign( ... signer_cert_path="/path/to/files/signer.cert", ... signer_key_path="/path/to/files/signer.pem", ... cert_path="/path/to/files/intermediate.cert", ... recipient_cert_path=None, ... content=manifest_json, ... output_format="DER", ... )
Verifies a content_path file against a signature at signature_path.
Note: this function was added to help in the tests only.
